Status Conditions

Certain moves may inflict status conditions that may hinder a Pokemon's performance which can tip the advantage during Pokemon Battles. Aside from moves that can only inflict status conditions, there are offensive moves that can deal both damage and status ailments. Certain moves, abilities and items can cure a Pokemon's status condition.

There are two types of Status Conditions. First, the status condition of the Pokemon will be displayed under its name. These conditions will remain even after battle and can only be cured using items or taking the pokemon to a Pokemon center. These status conditions can’t stack up over the other. A pokemon who uses “Rest” will be able to heal these conditions but will be replaced by “Sleep” as the side effect of the move.
